Andrew Marin – Love is an Orientation: Elevating the Conversation with the Gay Community
About Andrew Marin: Andrew Marin and his wife live in Boystown, a predominantly GLBT neighborhood in Chicago. His organization, The Marin Foundation, is conducting the largest-ever research study on religion in the gay community.
About the book:
“Andy Marin was caught off-guard when his three best friends came out to him in three consecutive months. Suddenly the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community – people he’d always seen as ‘out there’ both literally and figuratively – were up close and personal. How could he reconcile his friends to his faith? That question has become his life’s work.
“Why are so many people who are gay wary of people who are Christian? Do GLBT people need to change who they are? Do Christians need to change what they believe? Love is an Orientation elevates the conversation from genetics to gospel and builds a bridge between these two communities – a bridge that leads straight to the good news of Jesus Christ.”
